Dear all

To continue the discussion of whether we should have new SIG for

I think we already got enough time for this ML  [1], and it's time to jump
to the next step.
As we got a lot of positive feedbacks from ML [1], I think it's definitely
considered an action to create a new SIG, do some init works, and finally
Here are some things that we can start right now, to come out with the name
of SIG, the definition and mission.

Here's my draft plan:
To create a SIG name `Automatic SIG`, with given initial mission to improve
automatic scaling with (but not limited to) OpenStack. As we discussed in
forum [2], to have scenario tests and documents will be considered as
actions for the initial mission. I gonna assume we will start from
scenarios which already provide some basic tests and documents which we can
adapt very soon and use them to build a SIG environment. And the long-term
mission of this SIG is to make sure we provide good documentation and test
coverage for most automatic functionality.

I suggest `Automatic SIG` instead of `Autoscaling SIG` to make sure we can
provide more value if there are more needs in the future. Just like the
example which Adam raised `self-optimizing` from people who are
using watcher [3].
Let me know if you got any concerns about this name.
And to clarify, there will definitely some cross SIG co-work between this
new SIG and Self-Healing SIG (there're some common requirements even across
self-healing and autoscaling features.). We also need to make sure we do
not provide any duplicated work against self-healing SIG.
As a start, let's only focus on autoscaling scenario, and make sure we're
doing it right before we move to multiple cases.

If no objection, I will create the new SIG before next weekend and plan a
short schedule in Denver summit and PTG.
